The Go2Vent®

The GO2VENT® (Gas Operated Ventilator) is the newest version of the VORTRAN Medical single-patient/multiple-use ventilator. It provides “hands-free” ventilator support via a secure airway using a continuous gas source for up to 30 days. The GO2VENT® device can be operated on a compressor, oxygen or air with a minimum of 10 Liters per minute flow rates. Since it does not require the use of electricity or batteries, it is an ideal backup ventilator for the management of difficult situations such as, mass casualties, natural disasters, disease outbreaks, major power outages and is the perfect solution for transportation needs, whether in or out of the hospital.

Covid-19, a new perspective

Most of the world has been free from major health crises in the last decades, but unfortunately, Covid-19 brought a new perspective. Healthcare systems from around the world faced a new challenge: a shortage of ventilators. While trying to make sure that no one goes unventilated, healthcare systems faced large capital equipment costs and a lack of availability of ventilators on the market. The GO2Vent is the perfect solution to face future and current crises. Its production is easily scalable to meet the world’s demand, it does not require major capital investment and it can easily be stockpiled for up to 5 years. The GO2Vent has been used in natural disaster crises like Hurricane Katrina in the USA during which electricity was not available.

Product Presentation

The APM-Plus™

The APM-Plus is a battery-operated (2 x AA), portable, self-contained device that is connected to the patient via the connection kit to monitor the airway characteristics of patients connected to the GO2VENT®, resuscitators or CPAP devices. It gives clinicians patient ventilation parameters (PIP, PEEP, Respiration Rate, Inspiratory Time, Expiratory Time, and I:E Ratio) in Resuscitator Mode (for monitoring). It also provides visual alarm display with flashing LED and loud audible alarm based on fully adjustable alarm limits. It is easy to set-up and allows clinicians to have a true value of patient status during ventilation similar to a full-featured ventilator.
